We received an advance of Donna, Cassy Britton’s full-length debut as a recording artist, a few weeks before the day the purple music died, and the Prince cover easily stood out, even among the Austrian producer/DJ’s wonderfully diverse offerings. Co-produced by Philly’s legendary King Britt, the song carries a fantastic G-funk vibe, with electric piano chords setting forth an airy atmosphere so that Damon Bennett’s Minimoog and Chuck Treece’s tightly picked guitar can exchange coolly melodic hooks. Meanwhile, Cassy’s voice, full of resignation, expresses melancholy befitting such a huge loss.
